Service Desk Analyst Interview

Service Desk Analyst
Cardiff, Wales (UK)

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Atos Origin UK in December 2011.

Interview Details – A lot of following through of processes, online form filling, liasing with the company and its recruiters and Ministry of Defence. Be prepared for filling in hours of questionnaires and background check forms and paper posts. Once you get through it, it will be a relief because then to come on board is in itself a great achievent.

Interview Question – There are many questions from start, on the telephone, one-to-one interview, assessment and even once you are on board. If you are not communicative this is not the place to be.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Be honest and yourself. The person interviewing you also had to go through an interview themselves to get the job. They are not there to give you a hard time, but to test if you can handle pressure in a fast paced environment.

Consultant Interview

Consultant

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Atos Origin UK in January 2008.

Interview Details – Interviews were all completed on the same day:
- HR personality interview
- Panel Presentation and interview - 45 mins to choose one of 3 topics and prepare a presentation on it. Present to 3 senior managers and field questions
- 1:1 interview with Partner

Duration was roughly 4 hours and was tough going.

The offices were good and all interviewers were impressive.

Offer was made the next day. I thought the process was slick and I appreciated only having to take 1 afternoon off work and speed that offer was made.

Interview Question – there was a case study question, e.g. how much money does the UK insurance industry make per annum.   View Answer

Technical Architect Interview

Technical Architect

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Atos Origin UK in April 2008.

Interview Details – Initially called by the company to arrange a date and time for interview, which was telephonic in nature, the interview was designed to be technical. Was called on right time and date by the company's technical interviewer, was asked different questions for which I answered to my best of abilities.

Was asked more questions on fields that I had not worked before and have not stated in my CV, explained the interviewer that my profile will not match the job if the job duties will follow the techinical line and feild that I am being tested upon.

Frusturated that I had to spend time on a job interview that does not match my previous roles or skillsets.

Interview Question – network architecture   Answer Question

Technical Service Manager Interview

Technical Service Manager
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Atos Origin UK in January 2010.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview with HR. Asked what I knew about the company and why I wanted to join them. See the website for the former and the job description for the latter. Skills and experience matched requirement. I was asked what salary I was looking for and I presume if your out of range then you will not get any further!

I was asked a question a technical question by the HR person, I guess they had an answer sheet with the 'correct' answer, for I went through to the next stage. This was with the hiring manager and an HR person. Standard questions from the hiring manager on my experience that related to the job in hand and a few from the HR person. I suspect the questions were all prepared before hand by the hiring manager and both parties shared the interview.

Interview Question – No unusual questions, just the standard 'difficult' ones, e.g what are your weaknesses?   Answer Question
